Mary Erskine Home Economics Dept

Brief and Response

Creating a new Home Economics Department in an existing building was something of a "Challenge Anneka" for all concerned. As with all schools the window of opportunity for doing work is a narrow one: the summer holidays. As budgets are approved in the Spring, the time for

preparing for a building project is invariably compressed. What is more, schools are demanding and critical clients who set and expect others to achieve high standards. GLM met this challenge head on and using a combination of design, building surveying and project

management skills delivered the project within a very tight programme and on budget. This was the sort of project that, from past experience, the school expected to go wrong. When it exceeded their expectations on every front they were delighted.
